Mission & Services



Cipriano & Johnson Counseling mission to assist individuals and families suffering from addiction to engage in the recovery process through comprehensive treatment solutions an environment of dignity, respect and empathy and a belief that all people are capable of making positive changes in their lives.



Cipriano and Johnson Counseling offers a full range of substance abuse, alcohol and drug addiction treatment services. We use the Recovery Dynamics treatment model that is designed to follow the program of recovery found in Alcoholics Anonymous. The Recovery Dynamics treatment model was developed by Joe McQuany who was the “Joe” in the “Joe and Charlie Big Book Workshop”. For more than 40 years Joe devoted himself to helping others to discover the joys of recovery through the program found in the original Twelve Steps.

The Recovery Dynamics program explains the problem and the solution and then provides a program of action, broken down into small, easily digestible pieces that will guide you through Steps 1 – 9 and then teach you how to integrate into the recovery community and build the support network needed to stay clean and sober and experience the joys of long term recovery.

Our counselors at Cipriano and Johnson are trained and certified in Recovery Dynamics. Ron Cipriano is a certified Recovery Dynamics trainer and has trained many counselors in the Jacksonville area to use the Recovery Dynamics program.

We Offer EMDR!

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a set of standardized protocols that incorporate elements from many different treatment approaches. Scientific research has established EMDR as effective for post-traumatic stress. However, clinicians also have reported success using EMDR in treatment of addictions, anxiety, panic attacks, grief, performance anxiety, phobias, pain disorders and personality disorders. EMDR utilizes the brain’s natural ability to heal by using techniques that encourage the brain to process in ways similar to when a person is in the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep cycle. Blocked memories and experiences often result in negative beliefs and maladaptive behaviors. (i.e. Relapse). The bilateral eye movements unblock the negative beliefs and allow positive beliefs to take place. EMDR works on past, present and future issues related to a problem and can produce faster recovery results.
